Pervy tweet of woman at checkout gets barrage of hilarious replies

Well that's him told.

The premise of this bloke's tweet is as obvious as it is creepy. A woman waiting to pay at the checkout of what looks like a cafe of some sort; a full length photograph of her from behind, with the question: 'Her card declines and her bill is $300 Wyd????'

The jist is 'This woman is attractive - or at least I'm attracted to her body from behind - if she can't afford her huge bill, are you willing to pay it for her, thus causing her to feel instantly grateful and indebted to you, her new boyfriend...'

Wyd/What'd you do indeed.

Not only is it a) weird to photograph a stranger like that, and b) bizarre to assume she's spent all that money without being able to pay for it, but it's horrendously sexist to assume she is the tired stereotype of some money-grabbing 'gold digger' who's just waiting for some white knight with a fat wallet to win her heart.

Alas that is the scenario, and over 1,200 shares and 2,400 favourites would suggest that the fella tapped into some common conception. But a look at the replies to his tweet show a very different - and hilarious - reaction.

It seems many weren't willing to go along with the indecent presumption of his proposal, and had some very practical and no-nonsense answers to the query. Well done people of the internet - you're alright...sometimes.
